West King: Past and Future
A project initiated by Community Heritage Partners and Community First Fund with support from individuals, organizations, businesses, and a Planning Assistance Grant awarded by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
This study is uncovering the full potential of the West King Street district by rediscovering the history behind this forgotten neighborhood, documenting and assembling current physical configuration and ownership information, and proposing potential new uses, improvements, and reinvestment strategies that will build a revitalized and sustainable community. Using urban planning, historic preservation, and architectural techniques, Community Heritage Partners is suggesting how the West King area can be revitalized through intentional design and development
We encourage you to get involved and discover this overlooked area of our downtown, to engage with this study and provide community input and feedback, and to find out how you can be part of moving West King Street toward a more promising and prosperous future.
